In sad if unsurprising news, the Ironman Europe team have just announced that early September 2020’s edition of Ironman Wales has been cancelled.
The race, long sold out in 2020 and one of the most popular events on the worldwide Ironman calendar, will next be held in Tenby on 11-12 September 2021. Ironkids Wales is also off until 2021.
Here’s the short statement from Ironman on the cancellation.
“With the health and safety of our community being an utmost priority, and in alignment with Pembrokeshire County Council in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, we can confirm that IRONMAN Wales and IRONKIDS Wales originally scheduled for the September 5-6 weekend cannot take place in 2020 and will return on September 11-12, 2021. Athletes that are registered for the event are receiving an email with further details.
“While we are prevented from holding the event on the original event date, we are looking forward to providing athletes with an exceptional event experience in the future.”
